Jordan Peele, of Key & Peele, will next critique race relations with a horror movie, THR reports. Titled Get Out, the film, which was written and will be directed by Peele, tells the tale of a young black man who visits his white girlfriend’s family estate. “Like comedy, horror has an ability to provoke thought and further the conversation on real social issues in a very powerful way,” Peele said in a statement. “Get Out takes on the task of exploring race in America, something that hasn’t really been done within the genre since Night of the Living Dead 47 years ago.” Other plot and personnel details were unavailable at the moment, but if any zombies try to get froggy in that estate, we hope the main character is ready to draxx them sklounst.
